I think from memory a quick run down of Phil's gear would look something like this.A cherry red SG style Gibson w/ Fender Bassman cabinet and single amp head.Next was a Guild and then the amps stayed as Fenders but started to multiply for more power.Next was the hot rodded Guild and then on to the Alembics.Power now was w/ McIntosh 2300s 300wpc and has gone stereo.Wall of Sound not counting any other of the pa amps Phil used a stack of 4Macs and split the signal among the stacks and could if he chose to by p/u or string to come from what part of the stack or side.In 90s he went MIDI w/ Modulus basses 1st 4 then 6 string models and amps went digital.To add to the list of best rock bass players w#1 being Jack Cassidy,2.Jack Bruce3.Phil.4John Entwistle 5.Rick Danko6.overlooked but on many many albums played w/ Electric Flag Harvey Brooks.This is of course very subjective but I think all mainly were finger pickers.Oh my favorite Phil bass was the big Alembic w/ what looked like 10 or so knobs on it and not the next one w/ the star pattern at the knobs.
